    The road repair, which spans 30 meters, includes the construction of a new bridge deck slab of the flyover and the reconstruction of the damaged bridge diaphragm.    

     “Total closure of the bridge has to be implemented considering that the construction works have to be done without any vibration movement. Repairs will be done manually without heavy equipment,” Artes noted.

    The DPWH shared that a portion of the southbound flyover was already closed to traffic since last week after large cracks and potholes were discovered during an inspection.
